Pamela Anderson had a feeling she would be the first person sent home on Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars September 25 -- and she was right.
Prior to the show, the buxom blonde, 45, tweeted that she was "waiting for the axe to fall." Two hours later, it finally did when Emmy Award-winning host Tom Bergeron, 57, informed Anderson that she and pro partner Tristan MacManus would not be moving forward in the competition.
"The fish out of water has left the building," Anderson tweeted post-show. "Sad, but I deserved it. I didn't come through last night." She then apologized to MacManus, 30, telling him, "I love you. We have lots of fun stuff ahead! Sorry."
After finishing in last place with 17 points September 24 (compared to dancing duo Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke, who led the pack with 24.5 points), Anderson knew her spot on the ABC reality show was in jeopardy. "I know I'm not the best dancer out there, obviously, but I think I bring other things to the table," the Baywatch babe told Us Weekly. "I have a lot of heart and a lot of guts, and I want to be able to portray that. This gives me an opportunity to be myself and to be good at something. I want to be good at something!"
Despite being the first contestant to be sent home, Anderson "is in good spirits," MacManus told Access Hollywood. "She tried her best and I think I've been trying to reassure her that maybe she's thirteenth best instead of first loser."
Bristol Palin, 21, and Drew Lachey, 36, joined Anderson in the bottom three, but they will both get a chance for redemption on the October 1 episode. The other remaining contests include Smith, 43, Kirstie Alley, 61, Joey Fatone, 35, Shawn Johnson, 20, Gilles Marini, 36, Kelly Monaco, 36, Helio Castroneves, 37, Sabrina Bryan, 28, Apolo Anton Ohno, 30, and Melissa Rycroft, 29.
